I can only affirm that bug.It caused by Kitkat. On my F320K I can't copy files on SD by wireless connection, only onto internal storage. And I can't make a folder in SD card by Total Commander, only can move files from internal flash to SD one by one. The native file manager works fine with SD card though and can easily move whole folder from internal to SD card
Probably its a bug, IDK

I don't have a sd card on my G2 but my galaxy tablet had the same issue. Maybe if you check out the info here it might help to figure out how to fix it on your phone? http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1458021

OK, I found out, IT'S not a bug, Google f**ked up us once again, it's official behavior now. No program is allowed to write on external SD storage any more, except the stock programs (LG camera still store images to SD card DCIM folder and LG file manager can write, move and delete files on SD)
Other programs are allowed to write data ONLY to there subfolder in folder external_SD/Android/Data
Spread this info and me thinks that this curse is forever upon us

It's from here http://source.android.com/devices/tech/storage/. The same s*1t goes on on Galaxy Note 3 with Kitkat update, I presume that Galaxy S4 will be affected too
